How divine is comedy? When we tell jokes, are we reflecting our creator’s character or just whiling away the hours between here and eternity? Megan and Michael ask the question: has God got a sense of humour?
In the final episode for this season, Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit are talking comedy. Their big question: does God have a sense of humour?
When humans laugh, are we doing so as people made in the image of God? Or is this only a human response to the world? Or could laughter be a link to life in the next world?
The WADR team tackle each of these questions together, then review a comedy whose central character Megan has often been compared with – can you guess which one?
Finally, they finish up season 6 with a chat with a comedian who also happens to be an Anglican minister. It’s a whole new take on second vocations that’s a merry mile from St. Paul’s tent-making.

Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
